First there was the ‘fat’ gene which was a perfect excuse for every fat person to blame their gene pool…
Now it’s revealed that there is a ‘skinny’ gene. What will they discover next? The ‘smoking’ gene? The ‘bad-driver’ gene? The ‘I’m a real nasty ba@s%a&d’ gene?
Honestly, regardless of whether this gene exists, if you are overweight it’s no good lamenting the fact that you missed out on the skinny gene and inherited the fat one – get off your chuff, do some exercise, eat some good food and save your life, and the country’s health dollar.
Science doesn’t have the answer here. It’s just muddying the water – lets clear it up by exercising (a little a day) and eating healthier foods.
